About the Artist: Since learning the fused glass technique in 2009, I knew I had found the medium I could express my passion for color and beauty. After much experimentation and learning, I decided the fused glass looks so beautiful when it's lit up. For the past 7 years, I've focused on lighting. We do custom glass lighting for bathroom fixtures, pendant lighting, sconces, floor and table lamps and an assortment of accent lamps. My customers usually tell me, “we don't want the generic shades that everyone else has.” So together, with many techniques and styles and sizes, we create custom, one of a kind shade, just for them.

In this three-day workshop, Glass Bird Studios founder Lois Manno will teach all the basics of making and working with Modeling Glass™, plus learn step-by-step how to make their own life-like glass feathers. Lois will also introduce students to several other interesting projects, explore various techniques like combining Modeling Glass shapes with sheet glass, making images with enamels over Modeling Glass, and sgraffito carving. We’ll discuss display, mixing tricks, firing schedules, and the nearly limitless ways to work with this exciting new product.

About the Artist: Lois Manno has been a professional artist and author for the last 30 years. During her college years in Texas, she studied Drawing & Painting, and has illustrated books for numerous publishers.

After decades of working in two-dimensional, conventional media like acrylic paint and pastel, Lois began working in kiln-formed glass. A workshop offered by Bullseye Glass Company transformed Lois' entire attitude toward making art. Subsequent training in coldworking techniques and special effects in glass expanded her skill set. She has since developed several techniques unique to her own interest: creating three-dimensional sculptural glass objects without the need for molds. Using glass powder, she creates art inspired by what she loves—feathers, the sky, birds, and other forms from nature. Visit www.GlassBirdStudios.com to learn more about Lois Manno.

Get ready to "put it all together" in a fun, fast paced informative class designed to introduce students to the terminology, tools and techniques of basic fusing and slumping of kiln formed glass. Hand outs are centered on building upon essential knowledge to include types of fusing glass, COE and compatibility and why glass reacts the way is does when exposed to heat. Learn proper glass cutting skills, firing schedules, kiln operation and maintenance, mold preparation, studio safety and troubleshooting.

Students will create up to 4 projects from techniques and materials demonstrated in class which include dichroic jewelry, kiln carving, pocket vases and more. The final project will incorporate these techniques into a 12" bowl or sculpture. Day 2 will cover cold-working techniques and mold preparation to give your projects that "gallery quality" appearance. All projects will be fired in the kiln at the end of class and will be available for pick up in a few days or shipping arrangements can be made.
